This is a collection of images of entrepreneurs that I shot on the streets of Hanoi, Vietnam. Even though Vietnam is still purportedly a Communist country, it has made a policy shift to a more small business friendly, socialist-oriented, market economy and has begun experiencing rapid growth. You can almost feel the energy as newly unleashed entrepreneurs use the opportunity to use their skills and initiative to create small new businesses. I wandered the streets for hours and was amazed at the energy of the people and the beauty of the Old Quarter.
